The New Yorker has an interesting article on Louisa May Alcott's Little Women. Little Women was published in 1868 and this is its Sesquicentennial. It was one of the best-selling novels of the Reconstruction Era. Here is the link:

From the article:

It is doubtful whether any novel has been more important to America’s female writers than Louisa May Alcott’s “Little Women,” the story of the four March sisters living in genteel poverty in Massachusetts in the eighteen-sixties.
